How can I add plugin to Jellyfin?

  • Can somebody explain me how to add some plugin to the Jellyfin, please? When I open Dashboard > Plugins > Catalog, click on e.g. TMDb Box Sets plugin but I'm getting only spinnig circle and plugin doesn't install. Should I install plugins in some other way?

  • There's a good Jellyfin forum on Reddit.

    Samsung Evo M.2 256GB OS drive (28 GB partitioned for OS)

    4x4TB WD Red NAS drives - UnionFS pool

    Seagate 5TB USB drive - SnapRAID parity

  • So mergerfs is necessary for installing plugins in Jellyfin

    No, if you are using mergerfs you can't point the config folder to the mergerfs mountpoint.


    TBH, I looked at this some time ago, AFAIK it's not just as simple as selecting a plugin and it installs, unless it's changed, there was a reddit post in relation to installing that plugin

    Raid is not a backup! Would you go skydiving without a parachute?

  • So mergerfs is necessary for installing plugins in Jellyfin?

    mergerfs is the program OMV uses to implement Union File Systems. It is not needed to install plugins in Jellyfin.

  • You can install Jellyfin manually or use it with Docker.

    No need for plugin.

    You are confusing OMV plugins with Jellyfin plugins.
